Deruta

Deruta painted ceramics and majolica

Deruta

Deruta is a major centre for the production of painted ceramics in Italy and this is the main reason to visit this attractive town in the Province of Perugia. Nevertheless, in Deruta there are a fine gothic church and an art museum housing a fresco by Perugino. The Deruta majolica museum is excellent and there are of course a considerable number of ceramics shops. Note that some of the larger outlets are outside and below the town. Don't come here expecting bargains: deruta-ware is hand-painted, high quality and produced in many small factories and homes. Deruta majolica is not a mass-produced product.
